Metaphysically speaking, it is the nature of each and every Soul to move forward and upward and therefore our experiences will sometimes reflect greater challenges, obstacles, and tests to keep us in upward motion. Not all experiences are positive as you well know. We might encounter unpleasantness, suffering and pain if we are stagnant, but we will be shoved forward through those distressing challenges. It might not look like it at the time, but we can be sure the spiritual Law of Progress works for all of us.
If we are active and grow through our own doing, learning our lessons along the way, the challenges will lessen and we will live a calmer, happier, more peaceful life. By doing so, we are naturally flowing and working with the Universal current; we are not fighting against ourselves and blocking goodness from entering our being.
We must not sit idle and expect things to change by themselves or expect others to do the work. Unless we start right now by changing our part of the world, it will continue to appear the same to us. Yes, we must be the change we want our mental mirror reflecting back to us. All it takes is the courage for change!
With Love, ULRIKE
